Mud Volcano Creates Island in the Middle of the Ocean Overnight

If you run across an island on your next offshore fishing trip that wasn’t there the last time you went out, it’d be a good idea to not claim it as your own private island and set up an island oasis. Chances are what you found is a formation created by a mud volcano, similar to the one discovered off the Pakistan coast in 2013.

It functions much like a regular volcano, except a release of methane forces tons of mud through Earth’s surface, instead of molten hot lava. In the case of this mud formation, it was almost completely gone within a year.
